Minor rockfall in the Ngauranga Gorge to temporarily close two lanes

|

The NZ Transport Agency is advising the two southbound lanes and a footpath on State Highway 1 (south of Newlands) through the Ngauranga Gorge will be temporarily closed today at 12:30 to allow crews to clear up a small amount of material and install concrete barrier protection.

The NZ Transport Agency’s Regional Transport Systems Manager Mark Owen says the work is only expected to take an hour or two and will only impact southbound traffic.

“This is one of the busiest routes in and out of Wellington and we understand the importance of completing this work as quickly as possible,” Mr Owen says.

“One lane will still be available to southbound traffic, but road users may face delays.”

“We are putting in barriers because there has been a lot of rain lately and we need to remove the debris and do an assessment of the area.”

This means the footpath will remain closed until this work is completed.

An update will be posted on our website and social media pages as soon as the additional lanes and footpath are reopened.

The NZ Transport Agency wants to thank road users for their understanding and patience.
